and first of all how would you grade the efforts by merkel and sarkozy to save the eurozone and are heading in the right direction now i know it's a project that's been designed by those at the top of the european union needs to step that would bolster the market economy and that would be adjusted so that it could fit into the market economy according to the rules of the market economy if you decide to take on the risks you have to bear the responsibility for these risks the projects that are enforced from the top will not be able to operate under such conditions that those projects should work from the bottom up but. you can bureaucrats and their allies in national governments want to see more fiscal control over national governments more control over their budgets also how much central there's asian and the european union meeting your opinion now the part of the european union does not need more centralization excessive centralization has actually been the key problem and the reason that we are facing
the current crisis europe has been a project of the planning economy developed and been forced from the top the members that become part of the eurozone project very much different from one another and cannot provide a common homogenous currency space that's what has become so obvious under the present situation now they want to resolve the problem by introducing more centralization centralization is the root cause of the problem the economy speaks for itself the capital flight is enormous and some analysts say that the situation resembles that in the us before. the crash of brothers how real is the threat of the collapse of the yours on. the threat of a complete collapse of the eurozone is a means that is used by the europeans and the banks to blackmail european taxpayers if this pressure is not resisted then the so-called rescue umbrella will have to be extended over and over but every umbrella has its limits of course if greece had
announced a default on its bills it would have also had negative consequences for the other european states that no country in the european union will be able to go on without tough reforms there must be pressure on the states to conduct these reforms but it can only be possible when risks and responsibility come together so that the countries living beyond their means realize it do something about it. insuring european bonds means that those countries in a stronger economic position have to pay for the trouble was is this the correct price to solve the problem. you know in china i don't consider this to be a reasonable way to solve the problem i'd like to emphasize once again risks and responsibilities should be indivisible and no additional loans original investments can solve the problem but it's not possible to repaint old debts while making more new dates the crucial moment here is for every country to do their own homework in
other words for every country to take full responsibility for its own economy it was captured in the agreement framework of both the european union and the eurozone but the currently pursued policy is such that it is with these agreements it destroys the european usual it erodes its common values as well as destroying the common monetary and economic space this leads to the domino theory as we see more and more countries trying to hide from solving their own problems under the umbrella of. what you think it's fair to say that this euro bonds and mechanism. it can actually create more financial problems for the healthiest european economies yeah yes these are dangerous measures and they're quite dangerous for stable economies as well. it's especially clear today if we consider the example of france which is paying off dangerously high interest on its national debt and runs the risk of losing its aaa status. is also facing the same prospect and if france were
to lose its aaa status the entire bailout package for the euro zone would be placed at risk as it could become untenable it's a well known fact that the euro zone's bailout package. relies on the economies of six states finland the netherlands luxembourg austria germany and france austria and france's economies are now at risk we can say that the currently implemented measures really are not working and euro bonds are based on the principle of mutual guarantees which can actually create a system similar to the one. when the global economic crisis actually started in two thousand and eight i think it's fair to say that putting off the crash of the system through euro bonds and other financial stabilization mechanism can actually make the situation even worse in the end yeah does not exactly what all these
bailout measures only add fuel to the floods and only make the situation in europe . such countries as greece portugal and possibly even one island will not be able to emerge victorious from the current crisis they won't be able to recover the only measure that can you help is cutting heavily on state expenditure and other measures only an attempt to delay the. time is a luxury we don't. mr schaeffer you yourself have proposed to that feeling banks should not receive any go out at all but what could be the consequences of. the collapse of the euro zone one look at the carving into it all i think. has its repercussions no doubt but let me say again that piling new debts on top of old ones will only make matters worse and ultimately lead to the euro zone's collapse i don't think that we're as only going to survive in its current form it will very likely have to change so. if we look at the way the currently developing we can see
that we're going in a very different way greece's economy is shrinking it has shrunk by five percent on the other hand germany and a member of the other countries are growing albeit at a slow rate. is only going to grow what we need. and secession from the euro zone to enable countries like greece to pull out of the sort out their economy and then you mercy to cut government spending and improve their economic standing it's very hard for me to predict how the situation like develop even more so the consequences of developments as i say i don't think the eurozone will collapse complete like it's much more likely that we'll see some of its members back to launch a number of its measures secede from the e.u. i cannot see how secession is causing any repercussions on a global scale perhaps they'll put pressure on other countries with bad economies and force their governments to start reforms i think they're the problem we see in the euro zone and of excessive government debt has affected all of the world's
economies. look at russia the u.s. japan and they're all worried about their subject of stuff. what is your forecast for the italian crisis do you think that you know we should also consider moving back to national currency. do you not think italy would pull out of the eurozone with italy needs a fish and reforms to revitalize its economy and allow us to maintain a strong italian economy and. what the country needs most is the trust of its own people over fifty percent of the bonds issued. the italian government are in the hands of the people because the government will have to prove to its people that its capable of paying its debts. and finally being the european union has become some sort of a religion. the european elite. like i've already said saving the euro as a project imposed from the top down based on overrating the notion of
a european unity after all if europe is not merely the seventeen states that form the euro zone it's not even the twenty seven member states of the european union in fact europe comprises some fifteen nations and by the way that includes russia which is also part of europe with that in mind i believe it was the elites headquartered in brussels that promoted this project from the top aiming to drive europe into a new form of centralism and i think it will be in my mind europe's advantage is exactly its inclusiveness and its diversity and forms of different cultures languages mentalities and the people it comprises and imposing uniformity looks like a mistake to me this notion probably stems from the so-called brussels centralism mindset which has been put in practice by the french it's very dangerous and completely unnecessary. for thank you very much for your time thank you.
i. think people really didn't help for many years in the soviet system has faded away in less than twenty four hours a spell of this kind of push up. we acted in a true russian style we didn't know exactly what the future would bring that wouldn't think about later three leaders come together and sign an agreement dissolving the u.s.s.r. for good to get rid of the so called big brother that was always controlling them was the dream of many republics work. but in the eyes of the people they put it like this i will liberate you from the kremlin oppression no one wants to take the blame for it would not be able to persuade gorbachev and besides she's word could not be relied upon. he could tell you anything and do something completely
different function forgive myself for being too liberal and in the sand boris yeltsin before i should have that was my mistake. this is the decisive in strict boris yeltsin that sets in the kremlin instead of good stuff about time. again i don't think we have left elevator forest soaries of. two decades have passed but the discussion still rages was this applause for a fait accompli. it's all designed to keep you closed in your own small world as a prison. you know you leave somebody in there for a couple hours like that in
a stress position. you have this fear of the unknown and this stress sort of building and. i've seen interrogations go on ten twelve hours they chose songs i remember from marilyn manson and metallica slayer the two songs would be angel of death and raining blood to kill the enemy going through war coming up here into iraq coming up the baghdad. johnny put the body to the floor which is the rock n roll band it was fitting for the job we were doing. the close of team that's been on the black sea coast for future developments depend on the good way. to go to the area
march in moscow and st petersburg with rallies both for and against the outcome of russia's parliamentary elections before the election results are still do get out to brush party has already secured its position as the biggest party duma. moscow slams america's criticism of the poll say they want to question the choices made by the russian people and u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton wants an investigation. of europe's key leaders are making plans to reorganize the structure of the new as a way of solving the debt crisis that's ahead of a last ditch summit in brussels where. as are expected to agree on tighter controls
on member states. are the toughest but with andrew in the champions they threw up some interesting results last night kerry as any did what they had to do to reach the next round while chelsea ended up finishing on top of their group something no one was predicting at least we were. going to do it i was and the reaction just after the. holiday you're watching the sport and this is what is coming up over the next few minutes making history's any reach the knockout stages of the champions league for the very first time holding pool to go draw in portugal. while chelsea steam into the last sixteen is greeted with is with the three of and then see. how it will be heroes at the san siro. to upset into to keep their slim chances of qualification
a life. but first russian champions eight have reached the champions league knockout stage for the very first time a goal is draw against porto important goal and off to send them through poor needed to win this game to advance themselves but this is petersburg side defend its. for a vital point and that saw them finish second behind green wins and chop the table despite its senior defeat ukraine's shakhtar donetsk port and now into the europa league which they won last year was any on this polarity said his side deserved to reach the last sixteen of europe's premier club competition. so i think we could have done better but i also think that what happened was that i would come. the way with lazio in the group stage and for all that's fair people should have managed to go through. that because we wanted to go through the champions league it was not possible now we have to look at your only objective we're going to keep on working
and try to do our best to believe we're champions the current holders of the title and we want to defend the title which we conquered last season broke with me while chelsea made the knockout stage with a three nil win over the lens here stamford bridge two goals from video one from ramirez and showing they won their group ahead of by leaving between one one with gang in fell jim clancy take the europa league spot while playing. didn't how back in saying what last night meant to him and his place. used rules. nobody is really going to be good for misfits you've got. to do. really really really funny for the team and to get excellent. human values. sort of going to respond to your strength of character.
ability. to produce is a resilience. this isn't. just a player's elsewhere plenty of drumming say coming back from down in dortmund to win three two with a goal in the last minute a result which sends the french side through. to the last sixteen along with already qualified arsenal of course having to settle for huge europa league place there despite there when i with a gun. we. were winning and we thought we would make it to the next stage but mostly we turned the match and that was cruel to move it left us a bit disillusioned. and the vending champions barcelona and ac milan had already qualified from group h. but had differing fortunes last night pastor raising three huge great winners after a thumping bought a bar sell for nil at the nou camp that despite resting key players ahead of the el classico with at the weekend less of a two goal lead in the final couple of minutes to draw to see two we check side
gaudier bills and who go into the europa league. draw for the last sixteen movie made a week on friday and also hoping to be in the hat. but they've only a slim chance they've been training the san siro where they have debate. and then hope traps and small draw in the other game be to scar bottom of that at the moment but if everything goes their way they would finish second behind into who have already qualified although to discard. isn't pretending it's going to be easy. folks which unfortunately we don't know the line up of they have a large number of great players it is difficult for us to plan for a match like we might have something to try to do our best. books which this is how things are looking into scars group it is pretty time it is scar legal and tribes in sport all chasing that second spot for a place in the knockout stage. and to scar on the only ones relying on favorable
results manchester city's champions league prospects are hanging by a thread they are relying on some extremely favorable results even through the third place side must win at home to group a win is by munich also hoping rock bottom really reality. second place naturally to a draw to the character very man cheney says he's prepared for whatever the outcome . should do the thing called it. we need to be. very comfy that will be easy. for us. if not we're going to rope or legal we try to you know a party that we can do nothing more. than just you know if you don't have their fate in their own hands but they must get at least a point against the who would go through themselves if they get a win at home tonight the last time united fail to make the knockout stage was back
in two thousand and six but their manager sir alex ferguson the night has been a bad campaign so far say that three three draw with bars a little traffic earlier in the year was that only mishap always free. from from the casualness in the game against. someone that you could do it. because for the majority. boxing now world heavyweight champion vladimir klitschko will be shared you're his canceled fight again john my next march and it could also see his brother vitali fight david haye on the same card the moment fight was due to take place this weekend but was called off after vladimir had a kidney stone removed however his brother vitali here and i'm sure the bat will now take place on march the third and also claimed he could fight britain's daily
hate the same evening early this year hey lost his w.b. a belt to vladimir who also holds the. titles and the tali who is the w.b.c. champ says he'd love to have the chance to knock out the brit. after his fight against florida america i was hoping and disappointed as well i was glad that my brother won the fight against due to their last remaining heavyweight championship belt that was not included because brother scalextric i was disappointed just because of the little nuance that. i mean to win by knockout it's only a game i have to fight with. and finally the olympic cities of london and sochi are swapping tips ahead of staging the next summer and winter games both believe they can learn from each other as they prepare to host two of the biggest shows on earth he plays recently met in moscow to exchange ideas with more his rich poor flicked.
the most watched sporting events and. billions worldwide are expected to watch the games which go down the. time. however getting ready to host the globe's biggest sporting it struck a ganza is understandably no easy task and that's why london sought she and looking to learn from each other successes and mistakes in london's preparation for the games have been exemplary the way they set out their blueprint in their bid and then carried out that blueprint sochi have already been following that and have learnt a lot from how london has been preparing and i think the way london has tried to be a sustainable green games has been very successful and sochi again have tried to not only follow but even exceed those standards the meeting was held at the british embassy in moscow where members of illinois ational committees and business communities from both cities got together to exchange ideas however for john tips who's helped to organize almost a dozen lympics the key is finding
a good leader so one of the great things about sochi twenty fourteen that they've learnt from london is the importance of having very strong leadership a good visionary leader and in dimitri chernyshenko that's exactly what they've got so he's leading an incredibly strong passionate team who work incredibly long hours and it's the same as london with lord coe and i think this this is it's very important for the world and even pick movement to see the whole progress being driven by an inspirational leader and i think they have that in dmitri chernyshenko cities had to build a number of new good news for the games in london have the advantage of having a world class transport system and ready in place the same could be said of cinci where everything is having to be built from scratch i think the games are a catalyst for incredible change both infrastructure and social change and economic change in the region i think the russian government working to develop the region anyway but the olympic games provide that impetus they provide that catalyst for
change which enables everyone to focus both in russia and outside russia focus on the region and now today sochi is truly are. because of the them pick games she has just over two years to prepare for the chief times and fourteen winter games in london's times sport mind is just nine months away to see tisa really learn heavily from possible in cakes the next two games hosts are continuing to compare notes to ensure they can produce two memorable sporting festivals which we don't see more skating and that's it for me for the moment sporting to ask the. wealthy british style. guys for.
